Pocket Hunting Dimension - Chapter 654
Chapter 654 A Pierced Heart Receiving Comfort
In the living room, everyone looked at the empty box and fell into contemplation.
Nangong Jing frowned. “A few days after using the high-tech item and catching the blade demon, there’s a beast tide. Isn’t this too much of a coincidence?”
Lin Ling speculated, “Perhaps their original target wasn’t Lu Ze?”
Lu Ze smiled. “We can ask.” Then, he took out his phone and called Michael.
Michael picked up, and his fatigued figure appeared. Thereafter, Michael’s mouth twitched. “Lu Ze, don’t tell me you found another heat-stroked blade demon!”
Lu Ze smiled. “You’re kidding, General Michael. How can I be that lucky? The beast tide just passed, where would I find one?”
Michael rolled his eyes. “You know that too? I’m still at the defense line. I’m very busy. If you didn’t call me, I definitely wouldn’t have picked up.”
Lu Ze smiled. “Thank you, General Michael. I wanted to ask how the defense line is doing?”
Michael was speechless. “That’s what you called me for? Our losses are far less than we imagined. We just lost a few warships. There are close to zero casualties. This is a miracle!”
“Not just us but the other officers don’t dare to believe this mortality rate. We were ready for a huge loss.”
Everyone looked at Ying Ying gently. They knew this was Ying Ying’s work. However, they couldn’t tell this to Michael.
Lu Ze responded, “That’s great.”
Michael felt that Lu Ze wasn’t surprised enough, but he wasn’t dumb enough to think that Lu Ze did something.
The defense line stretched a few hundred light-years. Even the saints couldn’t handle that, let alone Lu Ze.
“You’re not just calling me for this, are you? If there’s nothing else, I’m hanging up.” Lu Ze asked, “Do you know the reason for this beast tide?” Michael’s face became serious. He frowned and stared at Lu Ze. “You know?”
Lu Ze answered, “I don’t know.”
“Then, why are you asking?”
Lu Ze provided, “I might have some clues here.”
“What?!” Michael stared at Lu Ze in disbelief.
“General Cheng Feng has sent elite squads to investigate many times, and they have found nothing. How did you find it?”
Lu Ze inquired, “Remember that level-8 planetary state blade demon?”
Michael nodded. “The one that knows darkness god art? Of course.”
“Good, we found something that doesn’t belong to the blade demons in his storage ring. It seems to be something from a more advanced race.”
Lu Ze explained to Michael about the previous two black boxes. “… Now, this box is empty.”
Michael sunk into contemplation. “Lu Ze, you’re suspecting that this blade demon did it?”
Lu Ze nodded. “Where is that captive? Can you ask anything from him?”
Michael frowned. “His cultivation level is too high. None of us have god art to control his mind. We’ve locked him up. The commander was planning to bring him back to Shenwu City, but we haven’t gone back yet, and the beast tide appeared.”
“He’s still locked in the prison at the stationed grounds.”
Level eight of the planetary state was too high.
People with mental force god art were extremely rare. Qiuyue Hesha was probably the strongest one with mental control god art in the human race.
Qiuyue Hesha frowned. “That blade demon is too strong. I can’t control him yet.” Lu Ze exhaled. “Then, we have to think of another way.”
Michael said, “I’ll report this to General Cheng Feng and send a notification at the base for them to monitor that blade demon.”
Lu Ze nodded.
Michael cut the call and breathed out. He looked at his second-in-command with a serious face. “Notify the stationing grounds to keep a close watch on that blade demon.”
The man nodded. Michael also started contacting HQ.
On an asteroid base inside an office, the bald-headed Cheng Feng looked at the star map and frowned.
The beast tide came so suddenly, but they weren’t able to locate the source.
He rubbed his forehead and sighed. They had searched the surrounding thousand light-year region. They didn’t find a beast pack this large, meaning this was really over.
Time to go back.
At this time, the sound of someone knocking on the door could be heard.
The door opened, and a brown-haired man came in. “General Cheng Feng, the vice commander of the Shang Yang Stationing Ground, Michael, wants to speak to you. He says it’s an emergency report.”
“Michael? Accept it,” Cheng Feng replied.
The man nodded.
Michael’s image appeared in the living room. He saluted, “General Cheng Feng!”
Cheng Feng nodded. “What is it?”
Michael took a deep breath. “I might have a clue about the beast tide.” “What?!” Cheng Feng glared at Michael. “You’re saying you found clues of the beast tide?”
Michael shook his head. “I didn’t, Lu Ze did.”
Cheng Feng was confused. Lu Ze was only a mortal evolution state and was inside the controlled region during the beast tide. How could he know?
Seeing that even the powerful general was surprised, his heart was comforted. Cheng Feng ordered, “Explain.”
Michael relayed, “I’ll start from Lu Ze capturing a level-8 planetary state blade demon who knows darkness god art…”
“Captured a level-8 planetary state blade demon??”
Michael nodded. “Lu Ze said that blade demon had a heatstroke, and Lu Ze found him.”
Cheng Feng: “…’ “Continue.” Then, Michael reported everything Lu Ze told him. Cheng Feng’s office fell silent. Moments later, Cheng Feng ordered, “Disperse the defense line, I’ll go to Shang Yang Stationing Ground. I’ll bring that blade demon to Shenwu City this time.” Michael smiled. “Yes, General.”
At this juncture, Michael’s man ran over with a pale face. “General, something happened!”
